Cuilionn BS: Shrove Tuesday/ Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras (47) RE: BS: Shrove Tuesday/ Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras 16 Feb 10

Back home from a church "pancake suppah" in New Gloucester, Maine... we had pancakes with wild Maine blueberries, jugs of real maple syrup, AND a King's Cake sent in from New Orleans, complete with plastic Baby Jeezus and--set in the middle of the cake ring--a tiny collectible porcelain figure of an 1800s-style rice cake vendor with her wares balanced in a basket on top of her head.

After suppah, we played games and ate cake in the vestry for as long as we could manage before our collective panic rose about driving home in the midst of a snowstorm. The pastor urged us all to "take some of these beads home, for goodness sake!" (I guess what we do with them there is our business.)


Happy Mardi Gras / Shrove Tuesday!
